Do you believe in ESP? Mutant powers? Did you know Stranger Things explore the concept of ESP during the 1970’s and 1980’s, which is basically true. The government were testing people that they had ESP to spy on other countries, this is way before the internet ever invented.

13 Reason Why: Season one – The Review

A teenage girl named Hannah Baker kills herself and leaves behind a set of cassette tapes which identify 13 reasons—and accordingly, 13 people—from her high school who she considers responsible for her suicide. The story is told over the course of 13 episodes, in flashbacks from Hannah’s point of view and from the present-day perspective of another student, Clay, who had a crush on Hannah and spends most of the show grappling with the secrets he learns on the tapes and confronting the people involved.

I have seen all of the episodes, and it is quite intriguing to watch, and it is worth seeing it again before the new season starts soon. The actors and the story are incredible and compelling and good looking too. It’s mesmerizing to watch happens next.

I am Frankie

 

FRanke TV showI am Frankie is an America Show on Nickelodeon. An Argentine writer Marcella Citterio created the show and Catharina Ledeboer adapted to a whole new for an audience can relate too.  Catharina is credit for “Every Witch Way” (which completed four seasons) and “Talia in the Kitchen.”

“I Am Frankie” is the story of Frankie, an experimental android who navigates the perils and wonders of being a teenager. Frankie looks like any other girl but functions like the newest computer: complete with Internet access, extensive memory, and a hard disk. Frankie goes to school and no one but the members of her family knows her secret. She adapts to the real world quite well, despite having no feelings or emotions, but all that changes when she begins to experience family life, make friends and have a boyfriend.

The story is fantastic and the cast is amazing. This show is much fun to watch. Compare to other shows on Nick, this is so much better. Since The Thundermans is going to Leave Next year. There should give it a second season and broadcast in Nickelodeon USA.  It’s a great family show. If you haven’t seen I Am Frankie, I highly recommend that you watch it.

Kevin (Probably) Saves the World

 

Kevin World

This show is a quirky comedy. Jason Ritter is a genius to Kevin, his comedic talent is sure laughable and where does he get it from? From his father John Ritter who passed away in 2003.

Kevin Finn is struggling. Directionless and clueless self-serving, he seems to be drifting ever closer to total despair. With his life spiraling further and further out of control, he heads home to seek refuge with his widowed twin sister, Amy,( JoAnna Garcia Swisher) a university professor who works for Astrophysics and her young daughter, Reese(Chloe East), niece to Kevin, and a rebel teenager.

On his first night there, life takes an unexpected turn when he receives an unlikely celestial being named Yvette (Kimberly Hebert Gregory), a guardian or an angel who came from a meteorite crash. The Guardian helps Kevin and his family to have a stronger connection together. The Guardian has a mission for him: to save the world. It’s going to take a lot of trial and error, but maybe a bigger purpose is exactly what he’s needed all along. Kevin ex-girlfriend worked as a high school teacher.

This show reminds me of Highway to Heaven, but different. Everyone needs a guardian or angel to help with the tough times.

So Watch Kevin Probably Saves the World on ABC on Tuesday Night.

Young Sheldon

 

Young sheldon

If you watched Young Sheldon last night, it was the number one show on CBS. But who is this Young Sheldon? Iain Armitage portrays Young Sheldon. He is a brilliant actor almost like his character.  He is known for HBO’s Big Little Lies he plays Shailene Woodley’s son Ziggy and in the film The Glass Castle (as the youngest Brian) with Brie Larson. Next, he will co-star with Mandy Moore.

There’s a controversy over Jim Parson’s character Sheldon that his character has autism. We all know what autism are the common symptoms they have problem understanding body language, facial expression, and tone of voice. Also, they can be intellectually smart, more like a robot with AI (Artificial Intelligent) or be a geek and nerd, and be teased at school. Leave them alone one they could rule the world. We have one already.

The bad news is Sheldon does not have autism, but the good news is Jim Parson is an actor. The writers of the show refuse to pathologies their characters because everyone should be loved and be accepted without labels. And the writers are very funny to create hilarious stories and plots and subplots to keep the ball rolling.

People who have “cute autism” do funny things like always need to sit in the same spot and memorize obscure facts. They misunderstand sexual innuendo, they carry around whiteboards, and they speak in funny, hyper-formal constructs. They amaze strangers with mental math, and they’re gosh darn persnickety about food and laundry. Cute autism is sometimes paired with cute OCD, which brings on symptoms like doing amusing rituals and being selectively germophobic, needing things to be lined up on shelves, and putting soup cans in alphabetical order, that makes us laugh.

“Cute Autism” is an identity that families of autistic children already feel compelled to perpetuate by only showing the funny or positive sides of autism.  We watch the events of our kids’ lives until the scary parts are gone.
